I've seen pictures of a 4-barrel on an old 1.5 liter Civic. The guy who did it says it's great. :?

it depends on how you tune it,

the stock carb is a twin barrel down draught which is good enough, you are better of spending your time on other things such as playing around with the exhaust.

i alreddy have 2 1/2" BroSpeed exsast and K&N high flow air filter and am working on finding a good header replacement so i want to skreew around with the carb, i might add a 2 barrel first and if there are no problems then i will try a 4 barrel.

Get rid of those Bosch +4 sparkplugs and go back to your stock NGKs. Those Bosch plugs have been nothing but problems for other people.
